Fit-Artist - I am sorry don't ask me why for a second I thought I was taking Omega 6. I am actually taking Omega 3 "Tuna Oil" from Standard Product. Even though I have juiced on and off it isn't until recently that I have started taking some vitamins. I am also taking a capsule of currant oil. What is your opinion on that?

The reason I take both of these is because they were recommended by a Dr. at a workshop I went to at the local whole food store. He is not a regular MD he is educated in natural medicine. I don't recall the official title he carries.

I don't see juicing as a "meal" exactly; that is, I don'e expect it to fill me. It's more like a part of a meal--the first part. After that I eat some protein or, as Doc M does, eat some pulp with a poached egg.

What the Doc forgot to mention in his article is that if you use a blender (like a VitaMix) to juice, you not only end up with a very thick thing that is hard to swallow but you are also left in the same predicament that comes with trying to get all your veggies in a day WITHOUT juicing--it's just too bulky. The nice thing about our juice extractors is that we get all the vitamins and minerals in the liquid from a bulk of veggies that we just couldn't get down in one day. And then we can munch on the pulp later and not feel as if we have to eat all of it. Share it with your compost and with your dogs! And don't forget to cook yourself some whole veggies later--or eat a salad!

Another thing Mercola didn't mention is that the pulp, being at times stringy and tough, needs to be minced fine with a sharp kitchen knife before it's easy to eat. At least i sure find that to be the case. Or, you have to cut all the tough, stringy center veins crosswise in small pieces as well as celery as you put them in the juicer. Even then i still minced the pulp.

Udo oil is good, but I don't believe it's any good for cooking with.
Just wondering.... why you take Omega 6? Seems as though North Americans are not short on Omega 6's. lol Foods like CORN have high omega 6. Excessive omega 6 is associated with all kinds of disease. That's why I'm wondering why you would take it. I don't mean anything by it...
Omega 3's are actually found in cold water fish. Great sources are wild salmon and black cod (oily fish).

I am not afraid of fat/oils I just don't want to over indulge unnecessarily. I take Omega 6. I thought that is what you find in cold water fish, such as wild Alaskan Salmon. I have heard Udo oil is just as good as olive oil but I haven't tried it.

Again thank you for the additional information and explanation. I have used the pulp before myself. I guess it depends on what you are juicing. In my case I had pulp from parsley and spinach and the pulp did not look bad at all. I sautéed an onion threw in the pulp and sautéed a little longer and then added a couple of scrambled eggs. It turned out pretty good.

For me I seem to juice for a week and then give it up for a while before I go back to it again. I feel like I stay fuller longer when I dice the veggies rather than juice.

I will check out the link.

I was blogging on some website somewhere recently and the question came up about what to do with the pulp. I told people what I did with it and some were completely aghast that I actually ate it (not all of it, it's too much) and shared it with my dogs. What is left over from my dogs and me goes to the compost pile.

My trick is to put a small handful on the cutting board and chop it up real fine with a kitchen knife then go ahead and eat it in different ways sometimes warming it up and sometimes eating it cold. I always add something to it to make it really tasty.

This morning Dr. Mercola talks about this (WOW, amazing!) and I was glad to hear it. I will just paste the thing here:

What To Do with the Pulp?

Many are concerned about wasting the pulp and throwing it away. Well that can easily be solved by composting it into your vegetable or ornamental garden. However, an even better solution would be to eat it.

From a nutritional perspective it is far more useful to eat the whole vegetable as the fibers actually serve as a prebiotic and raw fuel for your good bacteria to grow, and as a weed killer that actually helps to eradicate harmful organisms like yeast and pathogenic bacteria.

You are probably thinking "how disgusting," and "why would I ever want to do that?"

Well if you dress up the pulp with some Himalayan salt and other condiments that you may enjoy, like balsamic vinegar and crushed red peppers, it becomes far more palatable. What I have recently figured out though is if I put a few lightly poached eggs over the pulp with some melted fresh raw organic butter, it really is turns it into a delicious meal.

The butter and eggs provide fat and protein that actually balance out the meal. I used to feel hungry after juicing but since I started eating the pulp with poached eggs I feel very full and satisfied.

Maybe you already know, maybe not...fat isn't something that we have to be afraid of. I wish I'd used the term "oil" instead of "fat". Liquid oils are generally very bad for us not because they cling to our hips like most people mistakenly think but because they are heavy in the omega 6 category of fats. The typical American diet contains WAY too much omega 6 and it throws our health way off balance. We really need much more omega 3s

The other problem with seed oils is rancidity. Those oils go bad very quickly and most of the ones in the grocery store are already rancid which supply our poor bodies with lots of free radicals. Don't want that!

The best liquid oil of course is olive oil but it's got to be fresh, and extra virgin to actually be healthy...AND organic, naturally.

The main reason I even mentioned not cooking the eggplant in oil is that when you do you end up with an oil-soaked eggplant and that is not as tasty as when you braise it in water or broth; just greasy tasting. That is why a lot of conventional cooks bread the poor things before sticking them in casseroles or eating them by themselves.

Thank you for taking the time to do some research. I am glad you mentioned soaking up the oil as I have made mine sautéed with onion, garlic, tomato and then added parmesan cheese. I wouldn't want the extra fat.

I've been doing a little research this morning on eggplant and there seems to be a few differing opinions on how to prepare, cook, juice, and all that. What i got out of it personally, for me, is that eggplant, like so many other vegetables, need to be eaten in balance with other veggies and fruits. Just don't drink an entire eggplant's worth of juice at a time!! And when you do juice it leave the skin on. Juice a piece of the thing and cook the rest tomorrow.
Balance, balance, balance. And variety, so to get many different kinds of nutrients.

Hint: eggplant will soak up every bit of the fat you cook it in so it's best to water-saute it instead. Salting and draining it before you cook it simply removes excess water from it. Rinsing it will get all that salt off. Some people insist on doing this; personally, I wouldn't want to chance losing nutrients down the drain...but that's just me. BUT, if you are going to put it into a casserole (re: lasagna or something like that) you will want to remove some of the eggplant liquid or your beautiful casserole will be very soggy.

Here's just ONE of the sites I've looked at:

Hi, I have a Jack LaLane juicer and his juicing book. It says not to juice Eggplant, so I assume it means do not juice it raw.
Hope that helps.

PS - I am sure my juicer is like a scooter next to a Harley Davidson but it does the job. I love the Idea of rainbow colored juicing. Perhaps I will join you in the future. BTW is there any vegetable that should not be juiced before cooking or processing? For example I saw somewhere that eggplant should be soaked first, is this so?

I haven't been juicing lately because I am trying to stay on a very low carb. When I was using my Jack Lalane's Power Juicer I was juicing:

Apple
Spinach
Water Cress
Parsley
Small pcs of ginger

OK. So I adjusted my recipe. I love tomatoes! I also don't usually have cabbage around... and I ran out of cucumber as my daughter LOVES cucumber. lol

So, I used
4 whole tomatoes (medium sized)
1 carrot
1 green onion
1/2 red pepper
1 handful of spinach
1 celery stalk
Then I added some Himilayan salt and some black pepper.


I got about 750 mls of juice. So, I will drink a second glass this afternoon, and have some for tomorrow. From now on, I am going to try and do this every morning so the juice doesn't sit in my fridge overnight. Or, maybe get some small sized glass storage or pyrex cups.

Mine wasn't all that red either but yes, my tomato was very large and it was an heirloom type.

OK. I made the juice. It wasn't very red )or tomato flavoured). I only got just under 2 cups. Maybe your tomato was MUCH larger than mine... I'm gonna make it again and use 3-4 tomatoes.
It was tasty though!!!

I've been thinking of other things I could try with this "V-8" juice. Like a pinch of cayenne, a bit of fresh thyme and/or oregano and/or cilantro and/or parsley...things like that are popping into my mind...whoa, even a bit of garlic or ginger would be good. (just thought of that)

Let me know if you come up with anything to add. But I suggest that you do the original first and then see where your fantasies go with it.
Well...

We doubled this and got nearly a quart out of it. That might have been because both the tomato and the cucumber we used were really big.
Anyway, here it is...

Vegetable 8

1/2 Tomato
1/4 Cucumber
1 Carrot
1 Celery stalk
1 Handful Spinach
1/2 Red Pepper
1/2 Cup Cabbage
1 Green Onion

Hey, how's everybody doing with their veggies?? We're (dh & me) are still cranking the 'ol (new, used) juicer every morning. This morning we did a combo that i've been wanting to try for a while and just finally got around to doing it. It's the V-8 recipe. Holy WOW was it good! Want the recipe? Better than ANYTHING you can buy in a bottle or can; leaves that stuff right out of the ballpark completely.

Oh I'm still here and still juicing every day. Just haven't been posting. Most often the juicing happens so quickly that when it is all done I can't even remember what all went into it. We try to keep a variety of dark greens, light greens, beets, carrots, fruit (usually apple), cucumber, etc. This morning we had a lot of leftover cut up dipping veggies from a gathering on Saturday. So our juice was a collection of sliced red, orange and yellow bell peppers, jicama sticks, zucchini sticks, carrot sticks, mushrooms along with some other stuff (greens, cabbage, beets, etc) that were shoved through the juicer.

Sorry, I can never seem to stay faithful to any "challenges". Well, this one I'm being very faithful to... except for the posting part...

Not bad yesterday. I had some veggie juice, tons of salad greens, tomatoes, onions. Not a large variety, but many servings... Not bad for being on the road.

I love the smell of ginger - and it gave my morning drink a great kick! emoticon

Yes, as far as I know that is true about ginger and we do include it when we have any which we won't until Sunday. I don't know if adding ginger will offset the oxalic acid response. But it might when you think of all its wonderful healing properties. It sure makes that green drink taste good!

How about some ginger? The health benefits of ginger are endless.
They have properties rich in anti-oxidant,
anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer;
providing natural remedy for numerous disorders.

Just been sitting here on my arse doing a little research on oxalic acid after seeing on a website about Lamb's Qurarters that mentioned that it contains this substance as do many other green edible things. So off I went and after drilling down to what made sense I found out some cool stuff...and some contradictory stuff as well...but that's part of the game isn't it??

After this study the upshoot for me in my morning juicing is that I will back off a little on including so many things that have oxalic acid only including 2 or possibly 3 depending on the percentage of oxalic acid in a particular veggie. I may be being overly cautious but like I said, there are conflicting opinions and I don't have any kidney problems so I'm not really worrying about this. I will learn to let my mouth and stomach be judges as well.

I just need to use only one raw beet leaf in the juice and cook the rest. I already have experienced what is, for me, an overdose of beet greens by how my mouth and tummy reacted when I put all the gorgeous greens from a beet in together--now I know why it was so hard for me to drink!!

Anywho, here's a couple of links that talk about this issue and have charts that show the amounts of oxalic acid in different foods--really cool if you don't mind a few discrepancies:

Juicing Book is a great resource
www.juicingbook.com/oxalic-acid

Here's another website that talks about this:
oxalicacidinfo.com/

Hope this is helpful to some of you.

We burned out our 1st juicer over the winter and I found an awesome replacement, it's at Walmart and made by GE. It's not expensive and it's quiet and I love it. Incase anyone didn't want to blow the bank on one. I highly recommend it anyway.

Great challenge. BTW. I had Red (cherries) for snack and Green (peppers) White (onions) in my omlet. I have already cut up my Green (zucchini) and Yellow (squash) and Red (tomato) for tonight's bbq. yumm.

Today...

I drank garbage juice this morning ( www.youtube.com/watch?v=oflilIxVLzI ) which is a mix of veggies found in the gut (aka the fridge) today. Can't remember everything I put in, but they were all veggies and no fruit - all different colors in there for sure. It didn't taste all that hot, but I threw it down like Rocky did those raw eggs in the movie.

And I had my usual salad (dark greens, cucumber, purple cabbage, oregano), avocado for lunch and a small peach for snack.

Tonight, it's another usual salad and avocado. I might eat a few cherries...don't know 'cuz I'm on a diet and fruit doesn't go well with my weight loss diets.

My juice this morning was really simple

Cucumber, celery and lime. I added a bit of stevia and it tasted like limeade! YUM!
It actually only took me about 3 minutes to clean. Maybe because of the produce I used. Easier than cleaning up carrots and beets???

Anyhow, my fruit and veggie menu for today is as follows:

cucumber
celery
lime
red pepper
mushroom
onion
garlic
romaine lettuce
tomato
raspberries

I don't know what is going on but I'm not getting any messages from Spark People today.

Anyway, dh wants to ask about $150 for our old Omega. I will be surprised if anyone will pay that for even a juicer in good working order like this one because you can buy a new one for just about $250. Well, $100 is a savings for sure...we'll see. If we had to ship it somewhere I'm sure that would increase the cost quite a bit. These well made juicers have real heavy motors--that's what makes them so great. We live east of Portland, Oregon about 20 miles.

This morning's juicing was:
celery
zucchini
cucumber
romaine lettuce
bok choy
golden beets with their greens
red chard
apple
spinach

Oh, gosh... I can't really sell it. I paid a lot for it only about a year ago. It's a GreenStar. It must have been about $700. It's a twin gear. It's troublesome to clean but works really good. I can even make nut butters with it.
I like your profile pic btw.

How much do you want for your old juicer? I saw that same documentary that someone else mentioned and I'm starting the 10 day juice fast this Friday. I have an old juicer that was my mother's, but we want to replace it with a masticating juicer as soon as we can find one we can afford right now.

Vita Mix is a great blender, but not a great juicer. It doesn't take the pulp out.

Anyhow, I didn't get in as many veggies as I wanted today, and too many fruits. I had to go shopping. I bought some cucumber, celery and limes for juicing.

So, today my consumption was:

tomato juice
tomatoes
lettuce
onions
strawberry
banana
raspberries

Yes, this VERT is pretty easy to clean, just a little easier than our Omega 8002 which is still a great juicer BTW. But what is really nice about this VERT is how fast and complete it juices things; the pulp is drier and the cup fills up so fast that we tend to over do things. that is I give too many washed veggies to dh and some things don't get put in that I had intended to include. I'm learning to hold back and only put a little of each thing in so I can get all my "colors".

This is what went in this morning:
carrots
red chard
jicama
spinach
celery
red cabbage
cucumber
apple
dill
a variety of lettuces from the garden

Gosh it's good to be juicing again!

We just got a WONDERFUL juicer off Craig's List. It's an Omega Vertical (VRT 330). It is so smooth, so quiet, SO FAST! I'm in love. We'll be selling our Omega masticating juicer now

Omega now has an upgrade (VRT 330hd which simply has a stronger juicing screen which is a better choice for heavy usage. At least that is what I was told by an Omega rep in an email response to my question about it

The hubs and I watched that documentary as well and I'm shopping around for my first juicer. Found a good one on sale at Macys.com its a Breville so we will also be giving the 10-day juice fast a try as well. So far I have an apple and an orange at my desk right now, so that's two down, got green beans along with my lunch and more green veggies for dinner. Gotta find more to squeeze in. But I'm really looking forward to trying out the juice fast. Excellent idea, ladies!

I don't know why not. Any way we can get those colorful veggies and fruits down is a good thing. That's what I think anyway. I find it hard to eat the "required" veggies and fruits every day but juicing them...I think I can do that.

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

I'm starting a ten day juice fast on Friday - do juiced fruits and veggies count?

But those who wait on the LORD
Shall renew their strength;
They shall mount up with wings like eagles,
They shall run and not be weary,
They shall walk and not faint.
Isaiah 40:31

Everywhere and in all things I have learned both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. 13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Phil 4:13
By the grace of God I am what I am. 1 Cor. 15:10

New Challenge???

Gosh! I can't believe how quickly this team is growing. I started the team about two years ago, and just since yesterday it has grown by 500 members!!!

So, I haven't posted a CLEAN EATING challenge in a while? Is anyone else up for it?

How about since it's summer we have a fruit and veggie challenge. Try to eat the colour of the rainbow as often as possible. We can simply post our daily fruit and veggie consumption here in this thread.
I'm personally going to aim for 8 servings of fruits and veggies per day.


So, you guys in? We can do this for a week, or a month, or just until we get bored. lol
